It was like saying goodbye to a very dear, sacred friend--the ancient Oak Tree in the backyard. The house is empty and silent now, waiting for the new people to move in. After finishing cleaning, I wandered out to the back yard to thank the trees, the wind, and the other growth that inhabits the beautiful backyard. Mesmerized by the presence of this ancient friend. Reflecting on its teaching of patience, stillness, and inner peace. How many years has it silently grown providing shelter and shade?
